Action Packed Adventures in Bali

Bali is often known for its highly popular and busy beach getaway spots and its wonderful cultural sight-seeing opportunities. However, if you are looking to do more on your trip to Bali then you must check out these thrilling activities situated away from the hustle and bustle of popular tourist destinations. Many experience tour companies offer hotel pick-up and drop-off for Mayaloka Villa guests for a seamless tourist experience.

Off-road quad bike adventuring

There is nothing better than getting away from the city hot spots and heading off-road to enjoy Bali’s countryside up close and personal. Spend hours following a guide through tight rainforest trails and muddy jungle tracks, and admiring the aesthetic tiered rice paddies and luscious bamboo plantations. This half-day experience will allow you to see parts of Bali you would otherwise bypass on the way to other tourist attraction sites. Quad biking is suitable for those of 12 years of age and above and does not require any previous experience.

Whitewater rafting

Not only are Bali’s beaches exquisite, but so too is Bali’s Ayung River which ebbs and flows between beautiful views of rice fields and rainforests. Spend hours spotting wildlife, admiring the scenery, and negotiating the exciting and challenging rapids. Whitewater rafting is a great team building activity, and with suitability for 7 years of age plus, it makes for an excellent family or friendship group activity.

Stand up paddleboarding

If you’ve always dreamed of surfing but never quite believed you were capable, try your luck at stand up paddleboarding. It’s a physical challenge suitable for all ages and acts as a great stepping stone to one day reaching those surfing goals. Within hours you’ll be standing up and admiring a scenic view of the coastline as you paddle along. Calm waters and small waves will make for both a challenging and enjoyable experience.


If you’ve got a spare day on your itinerary, opt for a full day tour of the best snorkelling spots around Bali. Blue Lagoon is an essential stop for snorkelers. It features a small 60 metre stretch of white sand and blue waters, which are home to squids and octopi, reef sharks and rays, and many more beautiful native marine creatures. A couple of kilometres south you’ll find Bias Tugel, a 130-metre beach strip hidden between small hilly capes. A less frequented beach, Bias Tugel is a serene location with idyllic calm blue waters.
